We try to cut corners when possible and do what we can to give our budget a little cushion. Some people do that by working two jobs or working overtime or – you know – normal things. Here are some of our ways to accomplish our goal of being cheap.
* We spend our Saturday nights by living on the edge! We sit on buckets in the garage and strip wire while listening to country music. We like to take metals to the scrap yard like pop cans and copper from leftover wire or other things that we run across. Aren’t you jealous?!?
* I spend some bucks on my hair product. No, it’s not $20 a bottle but YOU try to straighten THIS hair with some cheap working spray. Not happening. So I buy it at my salon for more than I would like to spend. I find myself scraping the barrel when it comes to the end of the bottle. When it runs out and I can’t spray ANY thing out of it anymore, I start using the new bottle but dump the droplets from the old into the new. I have made an effort to never let Aaron see me do this because I know the let’s-make-fun-of-Sarah would never end!
* We’re sitting through an awful presentation next Wednesday on fire safety because sitting through it gives us a $30 gift card to Mancino’s – no purchase required. I love me some Mancino’s so I have no problem with wasting my time and make I’ll learn how to stop, drop, and roll…
How do YOU save a few extra pennies??
